Lutterworth Rotary Big Bike Ride that is held every August showed recently that fun and good health are not the only beneficiaries of the event. Neil Green of Neil Green Catering, the main sponsors of the ride, attended Lutterworth Rotary Club which organises the event to collect a cheque for £1500 that will go to help fund the work of Epilepsy Action. Neil has been a long term supporter of the charity, has done much fund raising himself and was the catalyst for Lutterworth Rotary Club taking up the event. Neil received the cheque from club President Mark Thompson who praised him for his support for an event that in 2018 attracted over 600 cyclists and raised almost £6,000 in total for a range of good causes.

International Committee Report.
Frank the bear our ambassador for “Ending Polio” has recently returned from a three week cruise on “Queen Elizabeth” which started in Singapore travelling to Port Kelang and Penang in Malaysia. From there he gained his sea legs before going to Colombo in Sri Lanka and travelling on to Victoria in the Seychelles having crossed the line meeting many people who were very interested in his “End Polio” jacket. While on board he was introduced to the Captain before he went on to Mauritius and Reunion Island leaving the ship in Port Elizabeth where he went on a trip to a game reserve in South Africa. Cape Town was seen for the second time this year where he met yet more people who were interested in his jacket.
We, as a club, are proud of Frank in his ambassadorial role in broadcasting Rotary’s role in ending Polio Worldwide.
Frank having just returned and still with itchy feet to do more travelling was taken to Cork in Ireland to meet their Rotary President and surprise, surprise met Anne Thompson who he had met earlier this year in South Africa at the Rotary Club of the Hibiscus Coast ‘Margate and Uvongo’ meeting yet more friends.
What more can we ask of our ambassador to promote the eradication of Polio.
